Sunflowers always follow the light, as should you.

5 Reasons To Love Sunflowers
Callie Capehart

1. They're yellow!

Yellow means creativeness. It inspires original thought and enthusiasm. Yellow does not bring on emotions, instead it challenges your brain to think inquisitively and analytically. Yellow helps you focus and concentrate, which is super important for exam time! The color yellow is uplifting to spirits and gives us optimism and confidence you may otherwise not contain.The golden color ignites curiosity and allows your brain to focus on finer details. It aids you in forming quick decisions and reactions, as it relates to the head instead of the heart. Your heart may be hurting but, your head won't be.

2. They look towards the sun!

Who doesn't love a little bit of sunshine? Sunflowers always follow the light, as should you. They see nothing but the light, literally. When you're looking at the sun you are not focused on the darkness behind you.

3. Sunflowers don't care how quick the flowers surrounding it grow.

Sunflowers do things at their own pace and their own way. Their roots run deep and take in all the water and nourishment they need to grow. Swaying, dancing, and bobbling around in the sunshine without a care is what they do best. They grow very slowly towards the light but, they take all the time they need to grow tall and strong no matter how rapidly the flowers around them grow. We could learn this from them, as most of us are worried about what our neighbors rather than ourselves.

4. Once they open up they're a source of nourishment for others.

When sunflowers are fully grown the open up. When they open up the insects, bees, and even people can get the nourishing gifts the sunflowers give. When they are fully grown all they have to do is be themselves and they attract so many others. Sunflowers grow with everything they have only to give away what they spent so much time growing. People these days don't do that. Sunflowers are not only beautiful but, they are selfless.

5. They grow in crazy conditions.

Sunflowers are strong enough to withstand the hottest and driest summers. That alone means that there must be something magical about them. No matter how hard it gets to find nourishment and grow, they somehow manage to do it anyway. Sunflowers just love to be alive!

Sunflowers are among the most wonderful creations. Beautiful, strong, bright, cheerful, and giving. Putting a bouquet of flowers on your kitchen or bedside table can brighten your mood, help with homework, or just make the room prettier. Sunflowers are truly amazing, what's not to love?

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
